Prayers go out to your Mrs., brother!

Strangely, in the past day or so the topic of the appropriate rapid initial care for TIAs & stroke has been on my mind for no apparent reason.

I found this this morn: http://www.medpagetoday.com/Cardiology/Strokes/45143

As far as nutraceuticals:
I don't recall all the details but 'seems like' oral dosing of ALCAR (Acetyl-L-carnitine) & NAC (N-acetylcysteine) within the 1st few hours can help minimize damage (I think that there is firm science on this). These won't hurt you & they are available at health food stores- there may not necessarily preventative measures though

Also Sulbutiamine, Noopept &/or the some of the racetam family might help in next few weeks/months. There is research in this as well- most of Noopept's is in Russian....

Again, prayers go out- whether you pray or not- meditate! There is good science on the importance of meditation. It will keep your gourd as it should be.
